Branches

This route had 1 branch:

  • 59 Keswick Market Place - Pefferlaw Lions Community Centre and Park via The ROC (Fridays to Sundays/Holidays, daily during holiday season)

History

  • February 10, 2012 - Route 59 began service after the 2011-2012 YRT/Viva strike. Its main purpose was to connect the communities along Georgina with The ROC, a new recreational outdoor facility that opened near the Georgina Municipal Offices. Since the recreational facility consists of mainly a winter theme, this route only operated during the winter season. Service originally operated between Georgina Ice Palace and Pefferlaw Lions Community Centre.
  • December 2012 - Route 59 was declared fully accessible in December 2012.
  • December 21, 2012 - Service is reinstated for the season. The route is extended south to serve Keswick Marketplace where all the Georgina-based routes now converge. Service also operated daily during the holiday season in anticipation of increased demand from students. Seasonal service ends on March 17 and is scheduled to be reinstated in winter 2013.
  • January 4, 2014 - Service was discontinued after the 2012-2013 season due to low ridership; the 2014 Annual Service Plan indicated the net cost per passenger ranged from $195.87 to $493.26. Service was replaced by a diversion to The ROC on route 50.

Vehicles

Route 59 was primarily a 30ft route, and used E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX. Two buses, 983 and 984, were given a special wrap advertising the service and are equipped with a ski/snowboard cage affixed to their rear bumpers.
